This lab is designed to complement the lecture material from ENVI.4100 - Soil Science. The lab includes field and laboratory measurements of soil structure and soil physical and chemical characteristics. As the outermost layer of the Earth's crust, soils are at the interface between earth, air, water, and life. Soils provide important ecosystem services and are critical for the sustenance of humanity.
Co-req: ENVI.4100 Soil Science, and Pre-req: GEOL.3070 Earth Materials, and CHEM.1220 Chemistry II, and Kennedy College of Science majors only.
